RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Of WESTOVER PARK COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION (in summary):

 Directors must be WOP property owners, be current on their assessments, and not have been convicted of a felony or crime of moral turpitude not longer ago than twenty years

  • This is a volunteer position, elected by the general membership serving a 2-year term
  • The Board, amongst themselves, elects a President, Vice President and Secretary/Treasurer. Each officer has specific duties, but all board members have equal voting on matters requiring a board decision
  • The Board meets regularly on a quarterly basis in an open meeting with the membership and in Executive Session to discuss confidential matters such as legal issues, contracts, etc.; notice with the agenda for the meetings are posted on the website and e-mailed to the membership
  • The Board works directly with the property supervisor in giving direction and decisions they have made so the supervisor and management company may implement the actions to get the stated results. Much of this communication is done via email to be more efficient to the Directors’ time
  • A Director should expect to spend probably 5 to 8 hours a week on Association business, excluding meeting time, and this fluctuates depending on the season and major projects or challenges being addressed
  • Board members are tasked with making sound business decisions to protect the best interests of the association and adhering to state legislative requirements at the same time. They are assisted by the management company to provide them with the information they need in order to make those best decisions
  • Board members are not expected to individually deal with residents on a one-to-one basis on issues as those are filtered through the property supervisor as appropriate
  • Directors need to make themselves available to keep the communication and decision- making processes flowing properly, however, still be given the right to be a homeowner when they are not on duty so to speak
  • The Board establishes committees and provides specific purpose/goal for each committee and shall serve as liaison to each recognized committee. All committee actions are to be presented to and approved by the Board prior to initiation of said actions
